Today was the first day I ever set foot on a real golf course. It was a 9-hole executive course, which I figured was appropriate since it hit 99 degrees here today. I shot a 69 on a par 35. It was really frustrating at times, but looking at my score from a few holes, I made 2 bogeys and a double on three of the holes, but completely fell apart in the middle. Had 40 strokes on 4 holes, and 29 on the other 5.
I knew my first time was not going to be great, so I just wanted to make good contact w/ the ball, get it in the air, keep it relative straight. I did lose 7 golf balls, and it was frustrating, but I really enjoyed it.
I know I can improve alot, especially if I can start hitting my driver. I reluctantly used it 3 or 4 times, and that is where alot of my penalty strokes and lost balls came into play. Need to get some practice in w/ the driver and keeping it straight. I am currently taking lessons, so I look forward to improving.
